Hi! I was wondering how [Turkey’s recent ban on crypto payments](https://www.reuters.com/technology/turkey-bans-use-cryptocurrencies-payments-sends-bitcoin-down-2021-04-16/) affects the retail investors and cryptocurrency enthusiasts of the country. What happens to those who are currently holding digital assets? Did you sell your crypto or are you holding for the long term? What do crypto-enthusiasts think about the ban in general?
About me: I’m a journalist for [Forkast.News](https://Forkast.News), and write stories on blockchain and cryptocurrency. I’m currently covering the sentiment caused by Turkey’s ban on crypto payments and would love to get some genuine insights about those who’ve been affected. Any comments and DMs are welcome. 🙂
